Friday Finds for Writers

Treasure ChestWriting-related resources, news, and reflections to read over the weekend.

  • Lisa Romeo earned her MFA five years ago. What does she have to show for it? (Read this eloquent and honest piece, people. You won’t regret it.)
  • For your weekend literary listening: “Andre Dubus III & Edith Pearlman: A Reading & Conversation, Sponsored by the PEN/Faulkner Foundation,” courtesy of the Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP).
  • With a little help from Ben Yagoda, Carol Tice presents “7 Simple Fixes” for writing mistakes.
  • Ron Charles reflects on’s “New Books” suggestions. (I am compelled to add that these suggestions may have some usefulness for book reviewers looking for not-yet-published titles to review.)
  • Finally, I’m not sure exactly which of my Twitter connections pointed me to Mashable’s “Complete Guide to Twitter Lingo,” but I think that Twitter newbies, especially, may appreciate it.
  • Happy weekend, everyone. See you back here on Monday!

      Thanks for the shout-out, Erika. I’d love to hear others’ experience a few years out from the MFA.

      1. I don’t have an MFA, but your experience read just like how it feels to sell a book and then not publish another for many years.
